To prepare pineapple for the grill first rinse the whole pineapple to remove any contaminants before you cut into it. A knife could press bacteria into the fruit.
Cut and remove both ends. Save the green part if using for decorating food displays. Slice the outer peel off then slice the pineapple into rings. I usually leave in the core during cooking to give the rings more stability when flipping them on the grill.
Lightly rub olive oil on the rings. Set aside on a plate until ready to grill.
Grill, then using a pineapple core gadget remove the circular hard core centers.
